    Okay. I was mostly just curious about the DOS wedge stuff because I'm trying to justify my decision to go with BASIC 2.0 instead of 4.0 for the project I'm working on. I know BASIC 4.0 has improved garbage collection, but my impression at least was almost all the rest of that additional 4k it takes up was the DOS extensions.

    Why would anyone want relative file support? Are there any legacy programs that use them? The biggest name database program is 'Data file Handler' and its only uses .seq files albeit with assembly routines.
    Personally I don't really care; if it can do .seq that probably covers any use case I might care about.

    Any webserver that supports php should work.
    Is the php script available? Does it go into the same directory as the PET program files? This feature sounds very useful. LOAD "program_name", 10 and whoosh, a PET program downloaded from the ether directly into the PET.

    You'll have to wait for bitfixer to release it, like I said, I'm just helping beta test.

    REL support is important if you have a SuperPET and want to run SuperOS9.

    OK, that would be useful. But are you able to run the Waterloo 6809 code without SuperOS9 on the SuperPet? That is, run Fortran, etc without SuperOS9?

    Also I think to run the SuperPet, the disk emulator would have to differentiate between drive 0: and drive 1: on the same device number drive. Not many do that.

    I'd like to get a SuperPet one day. I think running FORTRAN IV on a Commodore PET would be amazing.

    Yes, that's correct. You need two drives on the device. XD2031 will do this properly and Andre' recently fixed some problems with REL handling that had prevented OS-9 from working. I'm currently using an original PetSD with XD2031 firmware tethered to a Beaglebone running the server. It's a bit messy to have it all connected up and an all-in-one solution would be good as an alternative. Even more recently I fixed some longstanding problems in the SSE 'Hardbox' (Corvus interface for IEEE bus) and have hard drive support as well .
